Here’s our list of easy crafts to sell that you can make in the comfort of your own home! Grab your pen and paper and all your crafting supplies, and continue reading below. 

1. Large Framed Pieces

Do you love creating your own unique pieces of art? You might be surprised by how many people would love to have one of your pieces on display in their home. 

Start creating your pieces and then begin framing them. Use a photo mat to protect the artwork from the frame and to create a professional final product. Advertise your pieces on social media, and people will begin to inquire. 

You can even consider taking custom orders as well!

2. Refurbished Furniture 

More often than not, people choose to toss out old furniture and buy new pieces rather than refurbish them. If you have a knack for refurbishing old furniture pieces, then you can make a lot of money on the side. 

Drive through your neighborhood and fine pieces that people put out on the road. You can also visit local thrift shops and find pieces for cheap. Check all furniture pieces for signs of insects first and then give it life again! 

Good quality pieces like solid wood will sell high.

3. All-Natural Products

You can make all-natural products for the home and for personal care. Most of the ingredients you need to make these products can be found right in your kitchen cabinets! Head online and look up a few recipes for natural homemade soaps, lotions, body scrubs, and household cleaners.

If there are some items you don’t already have such as essential oils or beeswax, you can find them at your local natural stores, and they’ll last you a long time. People are more willing to spend money on natural products with ingredients they recognize. 

4. Customized Clothing

If you have a machine at home that allows you to create fun patterns and designs, then you should use it to customize pieces of clothing. You won’t want to make the same logo or design from another clothing company, but you can print out designs of your own on t-shirts, jackets, and more!

What’s a popular saying or quote? Is there a funny meme trending on the internet? Use these as inspiration to create clothing items people can only get from you!

5. Seasonal Wreaths 

Seasonal wreaths are quite popular and can get expensive when you purchase them in the store. If you’ve never tried to make one yourself, you’ll be happy to learn that making them is fun and easy!

You can buy old wreaths at your thrift shops, and remove all the items on them. Then, use your hot glue gun to glue on fall or winter leaves and other seasonal items. Make them unique and people will want them.
